Revis and a 2 might be worth it.

We run the option alot, but most of the time RGIII drops back to throw or hands off to Morris. Its rare that RGIII actually runs from the option as a designed play.

Generally, he drops back to throw and runs because protection breaks down before a receiver gets open. As i said, he takes hits in the open field instead of taking sacks, which is what would happen with someone like rex behind center. but he'd be taking the same number of big hits.

RGIIIs "style of play" is not more likely to get him injured than if he were a pure drop back passer. That was my point. Its the o-line thats responsible for RGIII taking hits. If they did their job well, RGIII wouldnt have to run and he could stay back and throw. He'd have something like 500 less running yards and 750-1000 more passing yards.

Regardless, until we can fix the o-line, we need Kirk Cousins. He's under contract 2 more years and i'd be shocked if he left before then unless we got a ridiculous offer.

So his value skyrockets because a guy with 19 post who actually looks to be a Giants fan mentioned him in a thread?

There are plenty of O-Linemen in the draft, I would be willing to see cousins go for the right trade, and it's more so because i believe he is a starter not a backup.

Re: Cousins Value Skyrockets,Jets Fans Want Him!!

I can't believe that Redskins fans are ready to shop Kirk Cousins after one game! The Redskins NEED Captain Kirk. You're NOT going to get 2nd round or 1st round picks, and the Jets won't give up Revis for him, lol!! Please come back down to reality.

So you want us to trade Cousins because he "deserves" to start somewhere? No thanks.

The fact that he's a "starter" is all the more reason to keep him. Having starting caliber players in a backup role is what every team wants at every position. Its called "depth." I understand its probably a foreign concept to most people, since we havent had it here at any position in a long long time.

No, it's much too soon. I say we keep Cousins for another season. By 2015, he may be worth a ton.

Re: Cousins Value Skyrockets,Jets Fans Want Him!!

Cousins isn't going anywhere unless someone overpays in value. If someone is willing to give up a starter and a high draft pick (like Arizona did for Kevin Kolb) then the front office has to listen. There are teams that are desperate for a QB. Not only the Jets but Jacksonville, Arizona, Minnesota and KC to name a few. But I just don't see anyone doing that off of a good pre season, one start and a few more plays.

Well, that's probably the best time to trade him. Look at guys like Kolb, Flynn, Whitehurst that get moved on potential, not actual production (and I realize Flynn wasn't a trade)

Re: Cousins Value Skyrockets,Jets Fans Want Him!!

we can't afford the revis/sanchez contracts, and why would we even want him here? rex gives us the same thing for less.

not opposed to a trade, but having a good backup QB isn't a horrible thing either, so unless it's really good, we shouldn't try to forcing something.

Re: Cousins Value Skyrockets,Jets Fans Want Him!!

Call me greedy but I love the fact we have 2 good young QB's. I'd like to keep it that way. With RG3 out and no KC...we very well could have lost to Cleveland. A solid young backup is a great thing to have. We can still fill positions of need and even a 1rst round pick isn't a sure thing. I don't mind if we never trade him. We're set at QB even if Griff were to get injured and have to sit out a few games. That's an advantage not many teams have...and I'd like to keep it.
